46.32 - "Summertime and the whisky is easy"

22 years old, distilled 16th November 1992, 53.1% abv, refill ex-bourbon hogshead, 275 bottles

DSC_0281The nose has lime, gooseberry, and a hint of mint leaf. The mouthfeel is thin and has a little cling. The body has apples, vanilla and meadows in flower. The finish is vanilla, but is quite short.

Water brings out thick, expanding whorling that lingers for quite a while. The nose now has no mint leaf, but more vanilla. The body has lost the apple, but gained a little butteriness. The finish is unchanged.

A decent dram for working in the garden on a hot summer's day.
